About Video Streaming

There are many ways to use streaming videos. You can 

  • have your own learning experience by viewing them within each database.  
  • share them with other Lambton College students, staff, and faculty by linking or embedding the videos into an email or document. 
  • quote them by using a provided transcript in a presentation or report.  
  • show a clip during a presentation by embedding in your PowerPoint.

If you would like to learn more, contact us or visit us in the Library & Learning Commons. 

Logging In

Our video streaming collections are for current students, faculty, and staff of Lambton College. If prompted for a username and password upon clicking a database link, your username is your Lambton ID number (e.g. C0123456) OR your Lambton email. Your password is always your Lambton College network password. 

Some databases have the option to make an account for accessing extra features. Unless instructed otherwise, any email and password can be used in creating these database-based accounts.

According to Fair Dealing under the Canadian Copyright Act, Lambton College faculty and staff may use these videos as part of classroom presentations. Lambton College students are also covered by Fair Dealings when using these videos in a presentation or assignment for their college courses. Proper citation and reference information is required when videos are used in slide show presentations, digital handouts, or assignments.
